Cisco Virtual Network Management Center and Product Details
Cisco VNMC uses security profiles for template-based configuration of security policies. A security profile is a collection of security policies that can be predefined and applied on an on-demand basis at the time of virtual machine instantiation. This profile-based approach significantly simplifies authoring, deployment, and management of security policies, including in a dense multi-tenant environment, while enhancing deployment agility and scaling. Security profiles also help reduce administrative errors and simplify audits.
The XML API for Cisco VNMC facilitates coordination with third-party provisioning tools for programmatic provisioning and management of Cisco VSG. By providing visual and programmatic controls, Cisco VNMC enables the security operations team to author and manage security policies for virtualized infrastructure and enhances collaboration with the server and network operations teams.
Cisco VNMC implements an information-model architecture in which each managed device, such as Cisco VSG, is represented by the device's object-information model. The model-based architecture enables: stateless managed devices: by abstracting security policies and object configurations into a centralized repository. Dynamic device allocation: a centralized resource management function that manages pools of devices that are commissioned in service and a pool of devices that are available for commissioning. This approach simplifies large-scale deployments because managed devices can be pre-instantiated and then configured on demand, and devices can be allocated and deallocated dynamically across commissioned and noncommissioned pools. Scalable management: a distributed management-plane function implemented using an embedded agent on each managed device that enables greater scalability.
